Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence gets 3.1 out of 5

Our last showing for 2016, “Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence”, received a score of 3.1 out of 5 which is a fair score. Perhaps the biggest criticism was that all the publicity was about David Bowie, who certainly played an intriguing and interesting figure. But the star, at least for English-speaking audiences, was Tom Conti, who gave an outstanding performance.
